MOTIVATED TO BUILD

June 30, 2017

Friday

 

Psalm 127:1

 

Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain.

 

 

LESSON

 

It is foolish, frustrating, and futile to attempt projects without seeking God’s blessing. This applies to building a house and building a household. This also applies to the much larger task of defending a city. Putting in long hours of hard work will only lead to weariness. Conversely, those who trust in the Lord, His beloved, experience rest. Solomon was not denigrating hard work but was advocating dependence on the Lord as one works.

 

Can you imagine building a house without blueprints? Many people try to build their lives without them and life becomes a disaster! Building a life and family without God’s blueprints is a sure fire way to damage those within your family for a lifetime. Those of you raised in a home with no plan and no God know I am being truthful. It is time for all of us to let God be our builder, protector and provider!

 

Memory Verse: 1 Kings 6:9

 

You will never reach your destination if you mind those that are always against you
